Often worshipers are asked to put away their devices during worship service, but you won’t hear that on Social Media Sunday, September 20. Why? Because Jesus said so. Jesus tells the story of the rich man and Lazarus, proclaiming "If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced even if someone rises from the dead." People need to be told the Good News in multiple ways: in person, Facebook, Instagram, website, letter, etc. Each of us must share the Good News!
In 2019, our communication options include social media. With over 2.3 billion users of social media* around the globe and 1 million new social mobile users added each day*, going into the world to share good news requires using new tools to reach people where they are.
